    Karen Minazuki/Cure Aqua 
Karen Minazuki, Goddess of Wealth-Induced Loneliness (Cure Aqua, Babaa)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aqua5.png
Cure Aqua (GoGo!) 
  • Lesser Goddess (as of GoGo!, she is an Intermediate Goddess)
  • Symbols: A miniature version of her Big Fancy House with the Aqua Pinky Catch at the center
  • Theme Songs: Karen's Theme, Heavenly Blue(Lyrics here)
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Water Magic, Student Council President, Ridiculously Rich Girls (With Hugeass House To Boot) That Are Lonely, Literal Blue Hair, Intelligence, Defrosted Ice Queen, Early Adventure Rebuff, Precure Sapphire Arrow, Graceful Magical Girl Warrior, Medical Studies
  • Domains: Emotion, Healing, Magic, Combat
  • Allies: All the Pretty Cures (preferably the Yes! ones), Mami Tomoe, Aquaman, Percy Jackson, Unohana Retsu, Litchi Faye-Ling, Mordin Solus, Charlotte LaBouff, Shiro Kazami/Kamen Rider V3, Jay Gatsby
  • Respects: Kyoichiro Kuroi/Kamen Rider 3 (formerly being Opposed by Karen)
  • Enemies: Bernkastel, Yuuki Terumi, Handsome Jack, Ryoma Sengoku/Kamen Rider Duke, Eliza and Neil Reagan, Looten Plunder
  • Conflicting Opinion: Chosokabe Motochika (is actually close friends with the shamisen-player Koei version)
  • Although she was personally not very lonely at all, Karen's past experience as a lonely soul enabled her to be elevated in the ranks of the Pantheon on the recommendation of Nagisa and Honoka (ontop of helping defeat the Nightmare and Eternal group). Karen's job is to soothe the loneliness of those who are rich and hopefully make them get past it by getting friends. She'll offer as the first friend too.
    • Her entrance was a little rocky as well. She thought she received the invitation to the Pantheon itself. When she approached the gates of the Pantheon, she was instead refused and booted out, as it was said that the invitation was fake, sending Karen into depression. The Yes! Cures still in mortal realm encouraged her to keep trying, and the Pantheon found out that the fake invitation was the machination of Terumi to Troll her with lines like "Forever Alone" after learning what she would achieve. After difficulties were taken care of, Karen was finally permitted.
  • She knew one day this would come to an end, but Karen is the first Yes! Cure to ever embrace the proper Pantheon. She eagerly waits that she won't be the only one (Considering that Rin Natsuki and Komachi Akimoto have been spotted in the Academy). Before that, she would content herself with the new friends she made in the Pantheon.
  • She excels in medical studies. She learned a lot from various Gods that knew the arts of healing and respected them all, but Karen mostly favored and hung around with Litchi Faye-Ling a lot, as not only she was the one who helped solve the difficulty of her entrance at first (along with Mami Tomoe), Karen considered her like a substitute mother figure considering her mortal mother (that she still loved and respected) rarely visit her.
    • During spare times, she tends to lock herself inside a room and held on her hand a spare Miracle Light she found, occasionally waving at it with hope. A lot thought it was because she's getting lonely herself, but in truth she's praying for a miracle, secretly sharing the item with other Precures that share her sentiments, so that everything will go well with Litchi's questionable status. Karen is unsure if this will surely fix things, but she felt that she has to try regardless.
  • Whenever she enters the Food Pantheon and leaves it, you can be assured that they will lose at least one bottle of grape juice.
  • Although it wasn't uttered often, calling Karen 'Babaa' is not recommended, she's not too pleased with it.
  • Has a personal horse named Charlie, who may not be as great as Koku-Oh, but Karen deeply cared for the horse, and the horse often came to her as her stead in battle. Naturally, she didn't take it well when Handsome Jack called the name 'lame' and offers to rename it as 'Butt Stallion II', causing Karen to flood him away.
  • Her house is amongst the biggest and fanciest in the Pantheon.
  • Contrary to her portfolio, Karen understood that the House of Commerce aren't always problematic. But she does understand that it tends to make several lonely people because of their immense wealth, that's where she comes in. In a way, it makes her similar to Yuri Tsukikage, fixing the problems her portfolio represents.
    • Though she does keep an eye against Looten Plunder, as his selfish motivations for richness are really promoting things Karen stood against. Not to mention, she along with her friends have fought not just one, but two evil world-destroying corporates.
    • She ran into Charlotte Labouf during one of her trips and the two got along splendidly over gumbo, beignets and fairy tales. Charlotte truly supports Karen's goals in helping lonely girls to obtain friends and is wiling to work with alongside her.
  • She also discovered Litchi's secret of getting drunk when no one's looking. Although she got her to agree not to drink, Karen got roped into playing 'dress ups'. While she agreed, she's secretly thinking of how to come up with a cute dress that fit Litchi's size without flaunting her wealth... something that she's contacting Charlotte for help.
  • She had a nightmare of Litchi leaving her and going back to her old obsessed self, leaving her in complete depression like she did when she was stuck in a Nightmare Mask. Fortunately, the nightmare was broken when Litchi woke her up and told her that she managed to redeem herself and is welcomed back amongst the proper Pantheon. Karen has nothing to say but a congratulations.
    • Is... less than fond of the ascension of Arakune due to the fact that she remembers from her nightmares that he was the reason why Ms. Litchi left her and had to work for the bad guys. Despite that, she respect Litchi's decisions regarding him and will help her cure him if possible, thus she wouldn't exactly 'oppose' him, but merely drive him away without killing him when he wreaks havoc.
    • Eventually, these feelings would thrust her head on into the Morality Civil War, with her being one of Litchi's most steadfast friend and defender, to the point that she harbored intense dislike to Kokonoe Mercury for brushing off Litchi without even caring about her conditions and claiming that her idea is the best idea to deal with Litchi. This is to the point that Karen started getting creeped out that she found herself edging with the slippery slope against Kokonoe…
    • By the end of it, the War ended and the Pantheon has given official statement that Litchi was to be forgiven. Karen was one of the first beings to wait at Litchi's house and gave her a hug, along with others.
  • Freed Jay Gatsby from Pantheon/The Fallen by accepting his money. She even managed to bring him to the same house as her.
  • Akin to another Pretty Cure member, it seems nowadays Karen has befriended another historical figure: Chousokabe Motochika (the shamisen-player, mind you). When they've first met, Motochika was strumming his shamisen in peace, and Karen was attracted to his music due to being well-aware of fine talent in that field. He then talked with her for a while about their water motifs, and played her a song of some sort regarding his stance in life. It touched her, especially with their possible ways to relate to each other somewhat.
    • When Karen was shocked to find out that he was the Chousokabe Motochika, ruler of Shikoku, she was at a loss for words. But in the end, they ended up as close friends.
  • Can also be found in Sadness.

    Ochaco Uraraka/Uravity 
Ochaco Uraraka, Goddess of Commoners Among Rich People (Uravity, Ochako)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ochaco_uraraka_hero_costume_action.png

    Perrine H. Clostermann 
Perrine H. Clostermann, Goddess of Poor Royalty (Perrine Henriette Clostermann, Four-Eyes)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/perrine_blitz.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A Coat of Arms with a Chartreux in one half and the other quarters taken by vines and a wing over a blue, white and red background
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (originally Chaotic Good)
  • Portfolio: Took a Level in Kindness, Character Development, Meganekko, Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold, Shock and Awe, Clingy Jealous Girl, Butt-Monkey, Ojou, Uncle Pennybags, Adopting the features of a Chartreux when using magic
  • Domains: Magic, Combat, Wealth, French people
  • Allies: (Strike Witches): Major Mio Sakamoto, Minna-Dietlinde Wilcke, Yoshika Miyafuji, Lynette Bishop, Francesca Lucchini, Charlotte E. Yeager, Gertrud Barkhorn, Erica Hartmann, Sanya V. Litvyak, Eila Illmatar Juutilainen
  • Opposes: Remy, The Spy
  • Enemies: The Neuroi, The Borg Queen, Deoxys, Princess Morbucks, Eliza and Neil Reagan, Bernkastel
  • Coming from the land of Gallia is Perrine H. Clastermann of the 501st JFW. Before the Neuroi invaded and took over Gallia, Perrine came from an extremely wealthy family and after Gallia was liberated, Perrine donated all her funds to rebuilding her homeland.
    • Perrine's magic is called "Tonnerre", it gives Perrine a wide AOE lightning attack. Despite being really powerful, Perrine doesn't use it very often because it messes up her hair.
  • Originally, Perrine was much more antagonistic towards not only Yoshika because Yoshika and Mio were more friendly with each other than Perrine would have liked them to be but also the other Strike Witches because Perrine didn't like how a lot of them were too lax despite being in a war with the Neuroi.
  • It's not uncommon to see Perrine trying to raise money however she can so she can give it all to the Gallia reconstruction efforts. This has earned Perrine the friendship of other generous and kind rich deities such as Elizabeth, Jerrica Benton and Rarity.
  • Perrine can sometimes be seen playing with the orphaned children of the pantheon as she converted her manor into an orphanage for children whose parents were killed during the war against the Neuroi.
  • Even though Perrine enjoys being in the house of commerce because she's good friends with Jerrica Benton and Emilie de Rochefort due to their shared generosity and upbringing, Perinne is simultaneously reluctant to go the Demigods and Quasideities section due to the existence Princess Morbucks who Perrine finds to be completely despicable due not only to her personality but also due to her views on spending money.
    • The same applies to Eliza and Neil Reagan.
  • Perrine gets along well with Mirai, Azusa Nakano, Len, Yoruichi Shihoin and Mako because they all share Perrine's motif of a black cat. Don't ask Perrine if she likes Bernkastel though, it'll likely end with you being electrocuted.
  • You can sometimes see Perrine hiding behind a corner, watching Major Mio Sakamoto from a distance, when asked what she's doing, Perrine will frequently answer with a very flustered "Nothing in particular!" Don't get too friendly with Mio though otherwise Perrine will start to act somewhat antagonistic around you, unless your name is Ooi who acts the same around people who get too friendly with Kitakami.
  • Perrine finds it kinda jarring how many people sound like her including but not limited to: Koneko Toujou, Nico Robin, Twilight Sparkle, Robin, Cammy White, Carl Clover and Sakuya Izayoi.
  • Perrine found herself enjoying being with Charlotte Dunois as she seems to have come from a similar but different Gallia to Perrine and finding they knew a surprising amount about the other's culture despite never being there.
    • Although Perrine doesn't like Remy or The Spy very much due to the fact that Perrine can't trust either of them; one because he's an asshole and the other because no one can trust him due to supposedly working for multiple sides at the same time.
  • Perrine is well liked by Yomi due to the fact that she spent her family's fortune towards rebuilding her homeland rather than spend it on something selfish as that is the kind of person that Yomi absolutely hates.
  • Perrine gets along pretty well with Emilie de Rochefort, Tsumugi Kotobuki and Aoi Futaba due to their shared upbringings.
  • Perrine is good friends with Weiss Schnee as she too is familiar with how to use a rapier, came from a wealthy family and was a jerk to one of their friends upon meeting them but warmed up to them eventually.
  • Also has a spot in the House of Royalty.

Demigods

    Akihisa Yoshii 
Akihisa Yoshii, God of Kindhearted Simpletons and Patron Saint of Perpetual Poverty (Class 2-F Ambassador, Punishment Inspector, the Biggest Idiot of them all, the Ultimate Idiot, Akiko / Aki-Chan)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5790252c762f0a2dc9a2bff7821621f6.jpg
Click here for his Summoned Being 
  • Demigod; though his summon is rated as a borderline Lesser God
  • Symbol: This. Alternatively, his Shoukanjuu / Summoned Beast.
  • Theme Song: Baka Go Home
  • Alignment: Neutral or Chaotic Good (But most of the time Chaotic Stupid)
  • Portfolio: Being immune to poisonous food while being able to cook gourmet-class food, Adorable Iron Butt Monkey, Chivalrous Pervert who is also Oblivious to Love and prone to spewing gratuitous amounts of blood through the nose, Idiot Hero, Being good at heart despite lacking in smarts,Living in total poverty, Lethal Joke Character, Being a knockout looker, even as a girl (As evidenced by these three pictures.)
  • Domains: Personality, Academy, Knowledge (well, lack thereof)
  • Followers: Jesus "Soos" Ramirez, Keith "Sky High" Goodman, Odysseus Eu Britannia
  • Allies: Beat, Keima Katsuragi, Yomi, Issei Hyodou, Ichika Orimura
  • Creeped out by: Yuno Gasai
  • Deathly Afraid (surprisingly) of: Alexander the Great, Solid Snake and Anavel Gato
  • Previously one of the Pantheon’s dual-duty high priests under Beat and Keima, his ascension was lobbied after a quick peek into his lifestyle revealed that he had literally pushed himself into poverty. To elaborate, his usual routine involves: 1/64th cup ramen cuts as lunch, salt water (main course) with sugar water ( side dish) meals, and cold water showers, for starters. His justification: he’s buying video games for his training to become a worthy successor, particularly to the latter.
    • Further inquiry into his exploits in the Fumizuki Academy summon wars gave light to his efforts to win the skirmishes in order to let one of his classmates – his female childhood friend Mizuki Himeji, who previously flunked the entrance test out of a technicality – retake the exam in order for her to move into a class worthy of her intelligence. He did succeed, but Mizuki decided to stay with his class anyways, as she wants to be with him instead.
  • He’s been flunking most of the written tests at the House of School, which doesn’t actually help his summoned beast whenever he enters a summon battle. Still, with his status as “Punishment Inspector” granting him the ability to synchronize with his summon better than others, he can dish out heaploads of damage when necessary. At the expense of directly feeling his summon’s injuries.
  • Despite his dismal academic record, he’s known to be one hell of a Supreme Chef. When he was invited over at the House of Food to cook his signature Paella, a lot of the deities advised him to open up his own restaurant in case he decides to retire from his participation in the Summon Wars.
  • He quickly became good buddies with Issei and Ichika, primarily for at least one similarity. Though he'd rather hang out with them when they are alone rather than while they are with any of their respective haremettes. The last time it happened, Aki lost tubloads of blood particularly when he met Houki and Akeno (For the record: Akihisa's "ideal girl" according to her elder sister = Ample Bosom + Ponytail).
  • He was rather creeped out when he crossed paths with Yuno. Initially, he mistook her appearance for Mizuki, but then she started going creepy sweet on him. Turns out that she was acting that way because she mistook his voice for Yuuki. And there's still that theory about Himeji being Yuno's twin sister from another timeline that got everyone scratching their heads.
  • Does not know what to make about Yuji Sakai .
  • He’s keeping careful tabs on Snake, Alexander the Great and Gato, as their voices remind him of his homeroom teacher “Iron Man” Nishimura. Moreso Snake, as he’s known to pop out of cardboard boxes much like him.
  • Can also be found in Nice & Nasty.

    Charlotte LaBouff 
Charlotte LaBouff, The Spoiled Sweet Goddess who Dreams About Being a Princess (Lottie)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lottie_6282.png
  • Demigoddess (She prefers the term Princess though)
  • Symbol: A copy of the Frog Prince
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: wearing pink outfits, dreaming of being a princess, being filthy rich but not being very bright yet very generous despite that, shimmering hair and personality, being friends with Tiana since childhood, good relationship with her father, having lots of gorgeous dresses, beauty from the South, dreams from reading lots of romance stories, wanting her own friend to achieve their own happiness
  • Domain: Generosity, Princesses, Fairy Tales, Friendship, Riches
  • Followers: Elizabeth "Lizzy" Midford, Ravel Phenex, Stella.
  • Allies: Tiana and Prince Naveen, Karen Minazuki, every good goddess in the House of Royalty (particularly the princesses!), Belle and the Beast, Jasmine, Aladdin, Lili de Rochefort, Rarity, The Cutie Mark Crusaders, Carly Nagisa, Mulan, Ariel, Jay Gatsby
  • She believed that she ascended after making a wish on the wishing star. What really made her ascend was her friendship with Black Best Friend Tiana, whom she helped get her dress up for a lavish ball she held and paid her enough money to open her restaurant. This moment made the Gods realize that Lottie deserved her position.
    • What cemented her case was during an incident when both Tiana and Prince Naveen —whom Lottie was going to marry to— had been turned into frogs, and that only a kiss from a princess (She was the princess of the Mardi Gras Fair that night, just go with it) would save them. When she learned how much her friend was in love with Naveen, she was happy for her friend's success and wished her good luck. This is because that while she wants her dream to marry a prince, she also wants Tiana to have happiness too. Many gods were moved by this, particularly during the time period that this took place in, and welcomed her to the Pantheon with open arms.
  • Became good friends with Rarity due to their desire to marry princes. Lottie loves all of the dresses Rarity makes and pays her a lot to have them commissioned. After having some time wearing them, she lets young girls have them so they could all be princesses.
  • Even though she's a goddess, she insists that she be called a princess. She also searches around the Pantheon, searching for a prince to marry. She doesn't mind if they say 'no'; she can wait.
  • When Tiana finally made it to the pantheon, Lottie burst into joy and gave her best friend a hug. She makes frequent visits to the Food Pantheon because of this. When Prince Naveen ascended, she hugged him, handed him some beignets, and jokingly asked when his little brother was arriving.
    • When Gordon Ramsay ascended, Charlotte heard him shouting, afraid that he was insulting Tiana's cooking. Not wanting to see her friend in tears, she ran toward him and nearly got herself into a fist fight with him. It took some tea, beignets, gumbo and a 30 minute talk for Ramsay to explain that he was praising Tiana for working her way up to accomplish her dream as it reminded him of an individual who once entered Hell's Kitchen with that same passion and hard-work ethic. Charlotte has since forgiven him (although she still does wince when Ramsay starts his yelling once more).
  • While traveling throughout the House of Emotion, she spotted Karen Minazuki. After some time together over beignets, gumbo and fairy tales, the two became fast friends. Lottie has now decided to help Karen on her mission to cheer up those who are rich yet lonely. Because of this, she decided to help Karen Minazuki with her plan to share her money with Jay Gatsby, and now visits Gatsby in the House of Sadness with tea and beignets. Jay Gatsby is thankful for Charlotte, especially for her love with her close friend Tiana.
  • When the new Royalty House came to be, and Princess Peach arrived as the first honorary god in the house, Charlotte rushed toward her and was excited to see a true princess in front of her eyes. The two spent some time talking to one another over tea, cake and some beignets which ended with Princess Peach giving her an honorary title of princess-in-training. Charlotte fainted in happiness. With the addition of Snow White, Aurora and Cinderella, Charlotte has worked twice as hard to become a princess just like them, but she hasn't lost sight of being the generous girl that she truly is.
    • Has heard of Xehanort's plan of using the Princesses of Heart to unlock Kingdom Hearts. While she may not be a real princess in any sense of the word, she's willing to disguise herself as a Princess if need be.
  • When Belle entered the House of Love, and Charlotte congratulated Belle for finding love with The Beast, she had the most brilliant idea ever. She began reading lots of books about fairy tales from Belle's personal collection and the House of Knowledge, deciding to use that knowledge for all young girls who desired to become princesses. After all, who better to teach them about how to be a princess when she herself was working hard to become one?
  • Padme's ascension into the Pantheon made Charlotte happier than before. Alongside Padme's beautiful clothes, she's jumped at a chance to be one of her doubles because that means she'd be a Princess for a Day. Tiana has been talking to her about the dangerous that would be.
    • Unfortunately, even Charlotte can't control the Cutie Mark Crusaders' energy and curiosity. She's gotten many complaints from the gods in regards to the destruction the little fillies have caused with their roundabouts here. That is, until the Crusaders' obtained their Cutie Marks. Charlotte burst into tears that day, and the Crusaders are helping her find a purpose in life that revolves around her love of being a princess.

    Cinderella 
Cinderella, Goddess of Timing Circumstances and The One Who Fits the Glass Slipper (Ella)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cinderella-disneyscreencaps_com-5347_4091.jpg
Click here  to see her as she appears in Into the Woods
  • Demigoddess (Overdeity when in-tandem with the other Princesses of Heart)
  • Symbol: Her Glass Slipper
  • Leitmotif: "A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Friends to Animals, beautiful dresses through magic, golden hair and heart, hoping and dreaming despite the bad things in her life, always optimistic, Princess of Heart
  • Domains: Royalty, Animals, Dreams, Hope
  • Heralds: Jaq and Gus
  • Allies: All good goddesses in the House of Royalty, Belle, the Beast, Jasmine, Terra, Ventus, Aqua, Sora, Alice, Sly Cooper, Bentley Turtle, Murray Hippo, Satoko Houjou, Homura Akemi, N, Candice White, James Henry Trotter, Cordelia, Carrie White
  • Enemies: Lady Tremaine, Maleficent, Master Xehanort, Vanitas, Larxene, Courtney Gears, Ghetsis, Eliza and Neil Reagan, The Master
  • Evil Counterpart: Cinder Fall
  • One of the last of the Princesses of Heart to ascend, Cinderella found herself in the company of the other princesses in the House of Royalty. Gets along well with both Snow White and Aurora, who are her predecessors of being princesses and also because of their ways with their animals.
  • Most of the time, Cinderella ranks as a Demigoddess, but should she ever be with the other Princesses of Heart, her rank jumps to Overdeity. There's a good reason why Jasmine, Belle, Alice, and Kairi are in different houses…
  • In an alternate timeline where her stepmother took away her chances to be with the Prince, she resorted things into her own hands and rode a demonic carriage in order to gain Prince Charming's hand in marriage.
  • Charlote LaBouff rushed into Cinderella's temple, so ecstatic to find three of the most important princesses in all of fairy-tale lore in one roof. Charlotte has declared that she was going to work just as hard as Cinderella in order to have her dreams come true and that she would one day be a princess in the House of Royalty.
  • Cinderella didn't seem to mind cleaning up after her chaotically evil step-family, but some gods believe she was merely putting on a smile to please them, completely obvious to the fact that they deathly hated her. In fact, when they heartlessly ripped her dress (after Jaq and Gus, with Ventus' help, fixed it), the Cooper Gang (Sly, Bentley and Murray) considered the Tremaines to be criminals, and robbed them that night as payback, leaving a note behind that warned them to treat her kindly or they will "kidnap" her. The trio would later attend Cinderella's wedding out of kindness.
    • Cinderella later revealed why she remained kind to her evil step-family before she was freed from their tyranny: she wanted to honor her real mother's final words ("Have courage and be kind."). Many gods, especially Jak, symphonized with her over these words, but a few have also told her that "some don't deserve kindness".
  • Cinderella actually didn't start to hate her step-family until they tried to murder her with the Cursed Coach Unversed. Aqua was able to save her, before the two witnessed the step-family burn as they sadistically laughed at her suffering.
    • Since their world was among the first to be destroyed, it's rumored that the Tremaines kidnapped Cinderella and brought her to Maleficent after they destroyed their world as revenge.
    • Because of her own problems with her evil sisters, Goneril and Regan, Cordelia has agreed to keep an eye on the mice should something happen to the Princess of Heart. Since the two have so much in common, it's feared that Cordelia's sisters may also have control of the Unversed, and are planning a similar plot on their sister...
    • One timeline had Cinderella send out several crows to peck out Drizella's and Anastasia's eyes before they could even summon the Cursed Coach. And that was before she dumped her jerkass prince and helped Red Riding Hood, Jack, and a widowed Baker take out a Giantess…
  • However, Aqua came to Cinderella and reported something shocking. In another lesser known verse, had the sisters not really gave in to The Power of Hate, at the very least, Cinderella would be able to let one of them, Anastasia, see the light and becomes a respectable Goddess, or hints that Drizella was this way because of emotional bullying by Tremaine... but the influence of the version in Aqua's homeland was too strong that the darkest version was the one entering the Pantheon, and what's worse... they were not the 'originals'. Cinderella did the impossible: she wiped away one single tear on Aqua's eye and proposed to at least get the stepsisters out of the Pantheon out of the respect of those 'original selves'. And as for Lady Tremaine... well, let's just say her hatred to her stepmother increased tenfold.
    • The step-sisters are now out of the pantheon, but if they ever want to return, they must atone for their crimes first.
  • After the ascension of her step-mother, security in the Royalty house drastically increased to prevent her from ever going near her again, especially following reports of her alliance with Courtney Gears. Cinderella even borrowed a Judicator from Ratchet to protect herself should she ever find herself in danger again.
    • Does not know what to think regarding Homura Akemi's retaliation against Lady Tremaine. Aqua and Sly have both encouraged Cinderella to view her torture positively, as she truly deserves it, especially since Homura's motive (protecting a small child who has suffered from incredibly cruel child abuse) is at the very least sympathetic.
    • Carrie White has even made sure that Lady Tremaine would never think of abusing anyone else again, as she made sure that whenever Tremaine touches Cinderella, she'll see the final moments of Chris Hargenson and Billy Nolan in her head. For some odd reason, Carrie asks why Cinderella didn't just use her powers as a Princess of Heart to escape.
  • Cinderella also has a male and modern counterpart in James Henry Trotter, who like herself, lost his parents at a young age, forced to live with two aunts who despise him and make him do all the chores, while dreaming of reaching New York City in the future. Cinderella really hates Spiker and Sponge for not only being cruel to James, but for being among the few to be worse than her own step-mothernote .
  • Cinderella doesn't like to talk how she's the basis for Cinder Fall, especially in light of Pyrrha's death, and Weiss' impalement. In a sense of irony, while Cinderella escaped being burned alive by her wicked stepmother, Cinder was frozen by Yang's wicked biological mother.

    Nagi Sanzen'in 
Nagi Sanzen'in, Goddess of Rich Folks who Lack Common Sense (Mask the Money, Hikikomori Queen)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/POTK-nagi_491.jpg
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: The Stone of Bonds
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Lonely Rich Kid, Tiny Tyrannical Girl, Mistakes Kidnapping Attempt For Love Confession, Otaku, Dreams of Being a Great Manga Artist Only to Fail, Well Meaning Tsundere, Covert Pervert
  • Domains: Wealth, Anime
  • Allies: Hayate Ayasaki (her butler), Hinagiku Katsura, Rin Tohsaka, Asuka Langley Soryu, Shana, Yayoi Kise/Cure Peace, Murakumo
  • Admires: Ashirogi Muto, Eiji Niizuma
  • Enemies: Anyone who hurts or threatens Hayate
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Asura (one-sided on her account for what he did to Hayate)
  • Ascended to the Pantheon for being someone of vast wealth who lacks understanding of how the world mostly works. At one point, she couldn't get a vending machine to work because she couldn't grasp how the machine only excepted a small amount of money.
  • After her ascension, she went to go look for Hayate. When she did, he became slightly hesitant and triggered due to an incident involving a certain former priestess and her overprotective father, fearing another unholy beating. Seeing that it wasn't a trick, Hayate, with Tears of Joy, ran up to to his mistress and grabbed her in a hug. Nagi blushed brightly, but didn't hold back for once.
  • With Nagi around, Hayate's tasks have become much more busy as he is not waiting on her hand and foot once more. Not that he minds it. To him, it's just another day.
  • Being an Otaku, she enjoys meeting some of the characters of her favorite anime who happen to make it into the Pantheon.
  • Is the former follower of Shana, and is one of the three holy trinity of Shana avatars. With her ascension, Shana hopes that Louise and Taiga would join as well.
  • Has found common ground with Rin and Asuka. Rin would often give her tips in trying to attract Hayate, while Asuka as decided to teach her a thing or two in self defence.
  • While she is somewhat of a brat towards Hayate a times, she cares and loves him to the point that anyone who wrongs him in anyway is put on her shit list. This leads to an incident seen bellow.
    • Was horrified to hear from Hyodo Issei about what Asura did to Hayate simply for speaking to his daughter Mithra over a small case mistaken identity and immediately went over to his temple to confront him, despite the warnings of from almost everyone of what Asura might do to her. Asura calmly explained to her that as Hayate is a member of the GUAG Chick Magnet Quartet, he doesn't trust him, out of fear of him "corrupting" Mithra. While Nagi can understand Asura and is glad that Mithra has such a good father, the fact remains that he hurt Hayate, gave him nightmares for weeks on end and, ironically enough, made him cry. As such, Nagi will never EVER forgive Asura.
  • She has become friends with Yayoi Kise and Murakumo, who also want to become Mangakas just like her. Why they didn't want to be with her at first is obvious, both are shy and Nagi has a bit of an attitude. But after Ashirogi Muto's ascension, they noticed they did have something in common, so they banded together and are trying to become a new group.

Quasideities

    Cal Hockley and Jack Dawson 
Cal Hockley and Jack Dawson, Patron Saints of the Rich Suitor, Poor Suitor (Jack: William, Don Juan; Cal: Gaston)

Cal (left) & Jack (right) saying goodbye to Rose, actually agreeing on something
  • Quasideities
  • Symbol: The Heart of the Ocean (Cal), a pencil sketch of Rose naked in his sketchbook (Jack)
  • Theme Song: "Take Her to Sea, Mr. Murdoch" (for Jack)
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (for Jack, although JonTron usually jokes that he is Chaotic Evil), True Neutral (for Cal)
  • Portfolio: Rich and poor Love Triangle for Rose
  • Domains: Wealth, Love, Disaster
    • Cal: Abuse,
    • Jack: Death, Sacrifice
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Each other, Calvin Candie
  • Complicated Relationship with:
  • Ascend together after Cal's suicide and Jack's death by freezing. No, they aren't happy about their situation of having to share a temple with each other. The two of them tried to stay away from each other and at least civilized when the two of them have to meet, but one can easily ignite a fight by just mentioning the Heart of the Ocean jewel. This did not get better when they heard about Rose's ascension.
    • The only thing that they can barely agree on is their share hatred of icebergs. And to forbid anyone to call them Don Juan, William, Gaston or mentioning the two of them with talking animals. Plus how they hate Calvin Candie because he once impersonated Jack to kidnap Rose to be his bride (Jack is obviously not pleased, but Cal declares that only he can take revenge on Rose and decided to team up with Jack to rescue her).
  • When heard about Rose's ascension, Jack immediately ran to her temple to reunite with her with a kiss. Cal, on the other hand, immediately throws a tantrum about how she cheated on him and he will make her pay for dropping the diamond into the sea.
  • Jack and Rose hate Gaston's guts for his douchy treatment of Belle and the Beast. This endears them to Belle and the Beast, who relates to his experience of loving from different social status. Cal, on the other hand, gets along very well with Gaston for their share hatred of Jack and the fact that they both feel their "love" chose someone that is lesser than them.
  • JonTron frequent pokes fun at Jack and holds him responsible for the Titanic sinking due to his portrayal in the bootleg video games the former played.
  • Jack has many allies who had to compete romantically with someone who has a much higher social status than them. A few of the notable ones are Tiana and Mary Jane Watson. The women got along with him really well because they think he is a romantic.
  • Jake makes a point to declare himself to be the king of the world whenever he travels on another boat.
  • With his ascension to the Pantheon, Jack can be usually seen drifting throughout the Pantheon as a freelance artists for hire. Sometimes he can be seen with Rose. People know not to disturb the two of them whenever they are saying they are drawing like the French.
  • Made quick friends with Aladdin for their drifting lifestyle and being in a relationship with a woman of a higher status than them. Although Jack disapproves of Aladdin lying to Jasmine about being Prince Ali.
    • Cal, on the other hand, had a bad relationship with Aladdin due to the fact that he disapproves of Aladdin having simply wished his wealth into existence.
  • Shinichi Kudo is a strong supporter of Jack's relationship with Rose because they remind him of his friend from the police force Sato and Takagi.
  • Charlotte LaBouff is a big fan of Jack and Rose's relationship because she thinks their story is romantic and Jack's friendship with Tiana, while she dislikes Cal for how poorly he treats Rose.
  • Jack was in a surprise of a lifetime when seeing how he looks similar to Jay Gatsby. The two keep a hostile relationship with each other because Jack dislikes how obsessive the latter was with Daisy.
  • From Rose's meeting with her sister Jo, Jack met a kindred spirit in Amy March who is also an artist.
  • Jack and Rose got along well with Romeo and Juliet due to the tragic nature of their romance. The four of them congratulated each other on that they have now reunited with the one they love. The fact that Romeo and Jack look the same also helps.
  • Cal and the Phantom don't get along because the two of them once mistook one for the other and have different philosophy on love.

    Charlie Bucket 
Charlie Bucket, The God Who Went From Rags to Riches
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/charlie_1971.jpg
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: The Wonka Golden Ticket
  • Theme Song: "I've Got A Golden Ticket"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Nice Guy, Pinball Protagonist, Started Poor, Ended Rich, Loves Sweets When He Can Get It, Lead You Can Relate To, Incorruptible Pure Pureness (mostly), Lonely Boys, Kid Hero, Kid Sidekick, The Only One of the Kids Who Was Nice, Blond-Haired Nice Guys, Audience Surrogate
  • Domains: Virtue, Poverty (and later Riches), Charity, Candy, Temptation, Inheritance
  • Followers: Dr Katsuragi, Louise, Vivian
  • Allies: Willy Wonka, The Doctor, Scrooge McDuck, Pinkie Pie, Charlotte LaBouff, Sara Crewe, Richie Rich, GIR, Stocking Anarchy, Mello, Akihisa Yoshii, James Henry Trotter, Princess Bubblegum, Matilda Wormwood
  • Enemies: Asides from Majin Buu, Agitha Trunchbull and Plankton, he's not in any position to have actual enemies
  • Opposes: Rich jerks like Princess Morbucks and Eliza and Neil Reagan, Eric Cartman
  • Charlie Bucket was part of a family in relative poverty, leading him to value simpler joys in life like getting a Wonka's Chocolate Bar one in a while. Through pure luck, he would be one of five kids to get the Golden Ticket, allowing him to enter Willy Wonka's factory. Through a test of character he proved to be the best suited for becoming the future heir of Willy Wonka, and inheriting his fortune.
  • Unlike the others kids who represented flaws in character, he proved himself pure of heart and overall a Nice Guy. That's not to say he's completely immune to temptation, as he does have some envy and once took the Fizzy Lift Drinks. This almost got him killed by a turbine, but he did admit his mistake and won Wonka's Secret Test of Character.
  • He isn't someone to have any real enemies due to his kind nature, though there are some gods that such a Jerkass he can't help but dislike them. Usually it's rich jerks like Princess Morbucks and the Reagan twins. Their incredibly spoiled personality and elitism hates the idea of him becoming the heir to Willy Wonka rather than them. He doesn't like Eric Cartman either due to how much of an asshole he can be, not helped by using his song in the context of exploiting Tourette's to be as offensive as possible.
  • Wonka is glad to see that Charlie managed to ascend, and has introduced him to the House of Food to help out. Those in the pantheon with a Sweet Tooth were glad, particularly Stocking Anarchy and Mello who are regular customers to Wonka's shops. Being the candy elemental, he's felt it best to get along with Princess Bubblegum.
  • Terrified and disgusted with Majin Buu. While this isn't surprising given what Buu is, the monster's habit of turning people into candy before eating them is an utter perversion of sweets and a sick joke. He's a lot more comfortable with the Fat Buu, though too scared to make a proper alliance.
  • Though too terrified to face Buu, Plankton is another story. In his schemes to drive Mr Krabs out of business, he decided to steal the formula for never-ending gobstoppers for this purpose. It went even more disastrously than his usual ventures, even getting gored in the spinning fans(though he managed to survive). While an enemy due to trying to steal Wonka's secrets, the two pity his attempts.
  • Gets along with James Henry Trotter. This comes partly from their shared authors, however they like how the other rose from a timid squalor to fame. This shared origin leads them to both dislike the cruel nature of Agatha Trunchball.
  • Because of his relationship with Wonka, Charlie gets along with the Doctor. Both Willy Wonka and the Doctor are eccentric, almost magical men with a penchant for English sweets and who's moral stance is up for debate, though usually agreed to be good at heart. Sometimes he offers Charlie a jelly baby.
  • Though disliking rich jerks, he does seem to appreciate good-hearted rich folk like Charlotte LaBouff and Riche Rich for their kind nature. And while not that nice a guy, Scrooge McDuck respects his kind nature paired with the candy business while he respects Scrooge's hard-working ethics. He is trying to help out Akihisa Yoshii get out of his Perpetual Poverty.

    Chester A. Bum 
Chester Alfred Bum, God of the Homeless (Chester A. Bum, Poor E. Broke)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/320px-bum_5571.jpg
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: A Styrofoam change cup
  • Theme Song: "Minuetto"
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Shouting, Having strange things happen to him that he brings up out of the blue, Alcohol and drugs, Thinking everything is the greatest thing he has ever seen in his life
  • Domains: Poverty, Alcohol, Drugs, Spare Change
  • Followers: Lester B. Bum, Spencer D. Bum, Pester, and the Cinema Bum
  • Allies: The Nostalgia Critic, Agent 47 (sort of), Bruce Wayne/Batman, The Avengers, Kevin Mccallister, Mary Poppins, Adrian Monk

  • Pities: Wreck-It-Ralph
  • Respects: V
  • Respected by: Namor the Sub-Mariner
  • Odd Friendship: Lisa and Ally, Ebenezer Scrooge
  • Conflicting Opinion: Stephen Colbert
  • "OH MY GOD, THIS IS THE GREATEST PANTHEON I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!"
  • The three Managers of Commerce may rule over their domain in the House of Commerce, but far below their skyscrapers lay a destitute man who nevertheless holds a crucial role in the house for many in the Pantheon. The self-proclaimed bum of the homeless has laid domain over those suffering under poverty ever since the Pantheon was first created. Many of the well-off in the Pantheon may scoff at the man for leading a bunch of ;'moochers' and 'welfere queens', but anyone who has suffered from a lack of money are sure to seek Chester A. Bum for guidance, whether it's to get out of poverty or live through it.
  • Chester can often be found sitting just outside the House of Commerce, living in a box and loudly demanding change of all passersby. Mr. Burns has grown tired of Chester's presence and would love nothing more than to evict him. Captain America and the rest of the House of Justice are also frequently at odds with Chester for his frequent possession of controlled substances, but Chester is often able to evade them.
  • For a time, people thought that Mr. Burns had finally succeeded in getting rid of the man. He convinced the other managers to require all deities in the House of Commerce to own a building up to code with housing guidelines. This was actually a thinly-disguised way to evict the bum from the area entirely. With no house to call a home, Chester walked up and left the Pantheon. It was Nostalgic Critic who walked over to Leslie Knope to inform her what happened. When an attempt to overturn the law failed, she turned to the deities themselves to help build a house for Chester A. Bum. Mr. Burns hired several hazards their way. But the sheer mass of heroes, poverty-stricken deities and even rich patrons such as Richie Rich and Charlotte LeBouff was enough to overcome the challenges to build a brand new temple. Sure enough, Chester appeared with tears in his eyes for all those who built his temple. Of course, he hardly uses the temple himself, but lends it to his followers as well as those who need a place to stay at night.
  • He and the Nostalgia Critic are long time friends. However, after an ill-fated search for the Necronomicon and a legal confrontation over the Critic's Transformers reviews, their relationship seems to be getting strained.
    • Recently, Chester and the Critic have begun to repair their relationship, with the Critic taking Chester in as a sort of secretary and intern as well as giving him a paycheck.
  • Besides Mr. Burns, he is also a favorite target of Alex Delarge, a boy who has an infamous disdain for the poor. The God of Soundtrack Dissonance and his drooges gleefully seek him out for the chance of beating Chester to a pulp.
  • A beating pales in comparison to what Patrick Bateman promised he would do to the Bum if he ever gets his hands on him. The Pretentious One firmly puts the blame on Chester's poverty to themselves and believes ridding the poor himself would do the city a favor. The fact that Chester managed to return only intensified his search. Chester himself wasn't to thrilled at Bateman for stabbing a homeless man in his film.
  • Has been the subject of multiple attempts of his life by Light Yagami. As someone who wants to Kill the Poor in order to improve society in his eyes, he has tried to find his true name. Yet thanks to the dubious nature of his origins, the Death Note does not work of Chester A. Bum. Instead, the Light has turn to targeting his followers, condemning them to gruesome deaths at his hands.
  • Is still unsure whether Stephen Colbert is an act or he truly wonders why poverty hasn't been illegal yet. For now, Chester keeps at body's length from the God of Truthiness. Rooting for the 'overdogs' over at the House of Commerce certainly doesn't help.
  • The many attempts on his life have been thwarted by the efforts of the enigma V. Much like his ability to outlast his own death, so too does he make sure that the poor will never be without a patron to watch over them. With that said, he won't try to defend his atrocious film.
  • Unlike the Nostalgia Critic, Chester has the chance to tackle movies that are actually genuinely good. He gave props to Batman and the Avengers for doing a wonderful job in their respective movies. Regardless, he refrains from making comparisons over which comic has the better movies, merely hoping to support the ones that are great.
  • Likewise, he felt a connection with Wreck-It-Ralph, citing how the two of them can descend to self-loathing at times. Certain parts of the movie even brought him to tears. As such, he makes time to visit Ralph when he can.
  • His review of Fifty Shades of Grey surprised many people, showing his proficiency for BDSM. Chester later confirmed that he does a little hooker work on the side and doesn't care which gender pays him for the job. He was later confronted by newer deities Lisa and Ally, the Goddesses of BDSM. They wanted to invite him to their lair in order to teach them some new techniques. After a brief conversation, the two allowed him to use one of their dungeons free of charge for services.
  • Namor spent a significant part of his life as an amnesiac homeless man. Johnny Storm may have helped restore his memories, but Chester has claimed to play a part in keeping the man alive for as long as he had. As such, Chester is one of the few humans he actually respects.
  • When Kevin McCallister was was stuck in New York City, he received help from an old homeless bird lady. It turns out that Chester rewarded an act of kindness towards the woman by saving him from his pursuers.
  • Speaking of bird ladies, he enjoyed the song Mary Poppins created in honor of the very women who feeds birds, a significant part of his followers. It's also a surefire way to annoy bankers just as Michael did when he was young.
  • Chester makes sure to send a cup of gravy every week to Adrian Monk as a token of thanks for solving the murder case of one of his own. Of course, Monk takes care to do his best to decontaminate the content every time. The detective is at least thankful that Chester doesn't seek to meet him face-to-face.
  • It was no surprise that the bum loved A Christmas Carol. After all, the story converted one of the biggest opponents of the pool into a man who is far more generous with his money. That and he genuinely thought it was a good story (even if it didn't have Scrooge McDuck). Scrooge invites Chester to his house in order to give him a warm place to star every Christmas Eve.
  • Of course, not everyone has taken a liking of his reviews, especially those whom he gave a less favorable review to:
    • The emerging Avatar deities did not like how he used a familiar criticism of their movie as being unoriginal. In the wake of their long-awaited sequel, the three have shunned him from checking any new information on that movie.
    • Charles Kane was enraged when he discovered that Chester bashed his film. It's not a complete surprise given the massive wealth gap between the two, but the bum genuinely does not believe for a second that Kane ever cared for the poor. He cites to the businessman's poor relationship with his own peers and his self-destructive behavior to prove his point. It's suspected that Kane played a role in Chester A. Bum's absence and Charles has not denied that claim.
    • Star Trek fans in general don't like him for advocating the stereotype that Nerds Are Virgins. The debate is still in the air over the bum's claim that the recent Star Trek movies were about trying to move towards more action sequences.
  • Every single deity in the South Park universe have a strict 'no homeless' policy. After an outbreak of the homeless convinced the citizens to burn down their own town, they aren't taking any chances with any of the poor in the Pantheon.
  • "HOORAY!"

  • Opposed by: Setsuko Ohara, Tsumugi Kotobuki, Light Yagami
  • In her mortal life, Eliza lived a life of great richness, with the source of joy in making another girl named Candice White (otherwise known as Candy) suffer. As she did not commit a completely serious crime and pleaded that she'll be good in the afterlife, she was allowed into the gates of Pantheon... but she was banned from ascending after her actions against Candy stroke many deities' nerves one too many times. She was allowed to come back after Masato Kusaka's ascension proved that you can be hated for being a jerk well. The fact that she exemplifies very well how a Rich Bitch lives and acts doesn't hurt neither.
  • Speaking of Kusaka, he seems to be somewhat fond of them. Especially of Neil, who reminded the Kamen Rider of himself by how he shot his last chance at redemption by delivering a Scarpia Ultimatum to Candy, establishing himself as a total jerk.
    • Eliza still loves to laugh behind his back at how there are some people (even though they are misguided) who ship her brother with Candy, but you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who likes the thought of Kusaka being with Mari at all.
    • However, this "friendship" might become strained if Kusaka finds out they are working with Sengoku. Though Neil has tried to convince the very few in the know that he's only being dragged int this by his sister, (which is true).
  • Pacifica Northwest was astonished to see them ascend, because she believes them to be what she could have become had certain events not happened.
  • Amusingly, Monokuma is still interested in her, maybe with plans to drag her into a 'High School of Mutual Murder' as 'Super High School Level Class Bitch' with bets that she'll be the first to kill someone... and then be executed For the Evulz. Some believe that he was the one who bailed Eliza.
  • They get along awfully well with Lady Tremaine. She reminds them of their mother and Tremaine likes having kids like them. Considering she lost her grasp on her daughters, this didn't surprise anyone.
    • Especially since Eliza and Neil were the "unofficial" stepsiblings of Candy. Of course, Ella didn't like to find this out and the twins hate her since they find her to be similar to Candy.
  • Neil also gets along with another Disney villain: Gaston. He understands what it feels like being rejected by the girl he "deserves".
  • Not particularly liked at all by any of the Bully Hunters of the Pantheon for obvious reasons, but Jimmy Hopkins and Makoto Itou in particular hate their guts. Jimmy on principle and Makoto just is repulsed at how she treated Kotonoha earlier on.
  • They really like to tease and annoy Karen Minazuki, stating that she's "Forever Alone despite being rich". As you can guess, this does not always end well for them.
    • They have also bothered Ange because she lost her kingdom. There is no prize for the one who guesses what happened next. She also dislikes that they are allied with that racist Kusaka.
    • They also tease Sunset Shimmer a lot, especially Eliza, who thinks the pony-turned-human is an idiot for believing that she can atone for her actions. This brought the attention of the Dazzlings and as such, they can often be found working together.
    • Eliza also earned the hatred of Tetsuya Tsurugi despite the fact that he isn't rich, not only because she dared pollute the voice of his friend Jun Honoo, her mistreatment to orphans like Candy apparently hits too close to home for a suffering orphan like Tetsuya. Needless to say, Eliza is very wary around him, considering Tetsuya's highly-lauded and well-known skill in combat.
  • Seto Kaiba is disgusted at them. DISGUSTED. Not only because he is an orphan and they look down on them, but also because he hates their bullying and abuse of their money, because only he can screw the rules with money!
    • Yomi also hates them and thinks that they are the embodiment of the worst kind upper class people, the ones who really are heartless bastards who don't deserve their fortune.
  • Melkor is interested in making them fundraisers for the GUAE now that they were set free. They don't seem to care that much, as long as people suffer.
    • There is another GUAE member interested in them, Ryoma Sengoku, who thinks that they would make fine users of the Sengoku Drivers with a few years of the proper training.
  • Eliza was NOT happy to see Candy finally ascend. Neil was more than pleased in the other hand...

    The Kims and Parks Families

From the top picture, left to right: Kim Ki-woo, Kim Ki-taek, Kim Chung-sook, Kim Ki-jeong. From the bottom picture, left to right: Park Da-hye, Park Yeon-kyo, Park Dong-ik, Park Da-song
  • Quasideities
  • Symbols: The 2 families on a rock with the water oppositely showing their reflections.
  • Theme Song: Opening, alternatively Belt of Faith
  • Alignment: Arguably, both qualify for Chaotic Neutral or True Neutral, but it can also be both.
  • Portfolios:
  • Domains: the Rich and the Poor, Social Status, Nuclear Families, Parasities (metaphorically)
  • Heralds: Min (Ki-woo's student/friend), the Parks' old helpers: Moon-gwang and Geun-se
  • Allies: Agnes, Anna, Karin and Maria, The Simpsons Family
  • Enemies: Both families' allies are interchanged but notable is Dong-ik's uncaring personality towards the poor.
  • Commonality Connection: Annie Leonhart (for Chung-sook), Trip and Grace (for Dong-ik and Yeon-kyo), The Wilkerson Family, The Mishima Family
  • Disappointed by: Jay Gatsby, Charles Kane, Perrine H. Clostermann (for the Parks as a whole), Victor Van Dort and Victoria Everglot
  • Rivals: Tomie Kawakami (for the Kims)
  • Pitied by: Sarah Crewe, Charlie Bucket
  • Enemy Mine with: Paul and Peter
  • Hates: Each other (minus their children), for Dong-ik, poor people in general.
  • The social classes between the rich and the poor can change one or more people's lives as the boundary of fortune mostly revolves on the former than the latter, but what happens when it is flown to the other side? Well this is what happens to these two families. The Kims, who are an extremely poor family are smart and resourceful, able to lie and create deceit towards others. On the other side are the Parks, a wealthy rich family (though family is a more generous term for them) who act as if they are in the top of the world for their wealth. When the Parks chooses to hire the Kims' son, Kim Ki-woo into the household as a teacher, the downfall of the two families begin in what can be described as a masquerade between the two, but most importantly was how the Kims were able to successfully leech the Parks' wealth during the course of their actions while at the same time, the Parks' own distaste and treatment towards the lower classes also slowly takes over the Kims own patience. Essentially, parasites to their own.
  • To shorten the two families, the Kims are a smart, if not very deceitful, bunch who will do anything to succeed when it comes to leeching off the fortunes of anyone they meet. They have the skills and toolsets for any perfect profession... but remain unwilling to even strive for those goals, hence why they prefer going after the rich. And out of all the rich families they have encountered are the Parks, a slowly dwindling family that, while rich on the outside, are very dysfunctional on the inside, with 2 of their children very unwitty, their mother unable to do any simple household chores and their father being an arrogant corporate prick, yet for some reason are still together despite the conflicts surrounding them.
  • Their presence in the Pantheon was unnoticed by many deities as they thought the two families were nothing more but visitors, however, the message that the two have brought with them such as the division of both the rich and poor and how both sides are prone to be in the wrong like the Parks' own uncaring attitude towards the poor to the Kims' willingness to kill when their deceit is being unraveled as well as their habit of ruining other people's jobs for their benefit became a highlight to their ascension, so much that the Court of the Gods brought both families in as a response to the message.
  • Despite their social differences, one noticeable similarity is their family structure, overall both families seem to have both a father and mother and two kids of both genders. This becomes important as the families, especially the kids do have developed relationships with each other, as opposed to the parents who seem to be on the fence against each other, especially with Dong-ik, who almost always treats the poor with little respect, outside of telling how smelly they are.
    • This unique structure the family possesses was seen by the Simpsons family, who seem to be the bridge between the poor and rich social structure as the family have gone many tribulations from near bankruptcy to outright rich endevours. As for their response, the Parks' father Dong-ik has refused to collaborate with them, their mother Yeon-kyo has been getting motherly lessons from Marge and the kids are rather reluctant to interact to both Bart and Lisa, outside of Da-song learning some Native American facts from Lisa. On the other hand, both Ki-taek and Homer do go very well with each other as they drink beer while Chung-sook avoids Marge due to her roughness towards the rich and perhaps even the middle class and the two children don't really talk much outside of Bart looking at Ki-jeong with curiosity and Lisa forced to teach Ki-woo actual english.
    • The family structures however does not help the dysfunctional status of the two families. For all the Kims skills comes their laziness and the Parks are basically all over the places similar to a bottle filled with different colors. The Wilkerson Family saw this, and while none of the family members saw this outside of pure similarity, their son, Malcolm sees eerie similarities deeper from the surface, such as Lois' parenting to Dong-ik's, Hal's near uselessness to Yeon-kyo, Reese's status as the family's dumbass son to Ki-woo and perhaps himself to both Ki-woo and Ki-jeong for their smart and lazy mindset.
    • As if it wasn't bad enough, their familial relationships are near similar to another heavily broken family, the Mishima family, with the very bloodthirsty feud between Kazuya and Heihachi Mishima and the troubled pasts of both Jin Kazama and Jun Kazama. While the entire troubled pasts are non existent to the family duos and that the bloodshed was very little compared to the Mishima debacle, there is certainly some similarity of broken familial relationships here and there.
  • The two families and their relationship as master and maids brought the attention of four women: Agnes, Anna, Karin and Maria, who took notice of the two families and saw the connection. However, the other sisters see more than that, with Maria being rather sympathetic to the Kims and for being rather similar in both being manipulative and adept liars, while Karin understands the issues going on with Dong-ik and Yeon-kyo. Agnes was rather saddened to hear the fate that befell both families and could see how even in any class would always cause issues, be it rich or poor.
  • Both families have been pitied by two children, Sarah Crewe and Charlie Bucket, both of who have gone through the hardships of being poor and came from rags to riches. Sarah believes the Kims need to change their mindsets so that they can have their lives changed while Charlie is rather displeased with how the Parks are so separated even with all the resources and riches they have acquired.
  • Social status has been a big theme among the two, so much that its what dictates both families, be it the Kims' two-faced skill and the Parks' luxurious lifestyles. This sad truth is what both Victor and Victoria heard the moment the family ascended as the two married each other for the sake of elevating the social classes both were placed into. After hearing the string of events that lead to Ki-jeong and Dong-ik's deaths alongside the old helpers and the near death of Ki-woo, their pity for the social hierarchy and on both sides only grew, and soon both of them were worried on behalf of their own social classes if the same conflict may happen to them.
  • At one point, the two families were reached out by two men with white clothing, asking if they could borrow some eggs. As they set up the first game for the two families to interact with, they were met with anger from the two fathers, with Ki-taek sick of Dong-ik's comments against him, and Chung-sook bringing out a knife in front of him, while Yeon-kyo passed out due to all the ensuring chaos and the siblings of both families are simply watching the parents against each other. Then in an surprise visit from the Parks' old helpers, Moon-gwang and Geun-se, did the tides turn against the Kims as their children were slowly getting killed one by one. The aftermath of the chaos led to both Paul and Peter satisfied with the carnage from the two families and decided not to play the games, instead willing to watch the two against each other from time to time.
  • The Kims are extremely poor, so much that almost all of them are simply running temporary jobs with no credentials whatsoever with their father Ki-taek running most of those, but that is made up for their reourcefulness and intelligent skills in the art of scamming anyone who they see as worth stealing from, such as their daughter Ki-jeong who is pretty much the master of all their con scheming and Ki-woo who acts as the writer/director of the plans while their mother Chung-sook acts like the muscle of the group. This mindset of theirs is what puts them always poor, as their minds are not so much as focusing on getting decent jobs, but stealing from others.
    • After their ascensions, the Kims started having newer opportunities to explore. Ki-jeong decided to go back to her Jessica moniker while Ki-woo started going back to his name as Kevin and explore being a hired tutor for the family, while Ki-taek got more opportunities as a driver (and other jobs) and Chung-sook is watching the family so that all of them remain together no matter the costs.
    • This mindset of theirs is counter-opposite to a fellow poor man Chester A. Bum, who the family calls him to be a raving lunatic of the annoying kind. However, they do sometimes go to hime for some tips on how to live the poor life, as Chester is very experienced in the poor settlement more than anyone in the Pantheon knows.
    • For a while, Chung-sook was approached by a blonde woman, who approached her with respect on her part. While she shrugged it away at first, she later realised she was talking to a person who represented her skill of being More Deadly Than the Male. She announced herself as Annie Leonhardt and saw her brutal skill as an athlete put into the real world to be something very remarked at. When the mother asked if she was ever rich, Annie could only respond with:
    Annie: "Riches? There are no riches on my world, unless you consider blood to be that."
    • When Omar Little heard about the family's notoriety when it comes to cons and ponzi schemes. He payed them a visit and noticed how both of them are pretty much poor people, unafraid of the type of people they are willing to cross. This earned The Terror's respect very much that he is a very welcome visitor to the family.
    • Outside of him, Ochako has been taking small visits from the Kims from time to time. While her family has warned her of the Kims' swindling schemes, she has good faith that her helping them will possibly change their mindset for the better, as opposed to being stuck in an endless loop of stealing.
    • The news of the Kims' own swindling schemes came unnoticed when Tomie Kawakami saw what the family was planning outside of just stealing fortune from the Parks. In an attempt to steal their fortune, she seduced their son Ki-woo and came Chung-sook and Ki-jeong getting rid of her to keep her away from their son. That would not be the last however as she has taken attempts to not only swoon on him but on Ki-taek as well, seeing that the family are rivals when it comes to the stealing and leeching of wealth from others.
    • On the other side of the globe however, the same poor-rich scenario that occurred to them appeared on Gotham after an incident that was related with the Joker. While the Kims wanted to see the events, what they found from the news was that this Joker was far different from the original incarnation, a man by the name of Arthur Fleck took the Joker persona and caused havoc and chaos towards society with the poor-rich relationship being just a side-effect of the riots. Nonetheless, this version of the Joker sympathizes with the family and promises that those people like the Parks will suffer the same pain they inflicted on them.
    • "You know what kind of plan never fails? No plan. No plan at all. You know why? Because life cannot be planned."
  • The Parks are a very rich family, so rich that they act aristocratic when it comes to their behaviour, but that costed them their bonds, as the family is less than an actual family and more of a group of uncoordinated individuals. Their children are very rambunctious, especially their son Da-song who seems to think of the artistic type (even though many people think otherwise) though much less their daughter Da-hye, who is rather observant in some cases, their mother Yeon-kyo is clueless about anything related to housework, hence why she relies on maids or househelpers, and their father Dong-ik, while supplying the family with riches, ends up being having the biggest disdain towards anyone and an arrogance that clearly put him at a disadvantage despite being an upper class.
    • While their ascension was being finished, Dong-ik decided to establish his tech firm in the family's temple to continue their wealth, while Yeon-kyo was trying to finish her list of things to accomplish prior to them moving to a temple. Da-song ended entering the House of Cultures to see more of the native Indians and Da-hye ended up just watching all of this from the perch of her room.
    • Thanks to all the richness they have, that lead the family to interest with the Reagans, who themselves are rich as well. Because of the family's cluelessness, they seem to accept their presence, and their father is the one that accepts their invitations considering that both are in the upper class, even though the Reagans in particular have a record of disrespect that would even rival Dong-ik's own attitude.
    • Upper class student Byakuya Togami took a small interest on the family and is interested with working alongside Dong-ik, though his reaction towards the other family members are not the same. For one, he sees Yeon-kyo nearly useless and her children hard to communicate with. What he doesn't know is that compared to the two of them, the father is more of the arrogant douche than Byakuya is.
      • Another thing that Byakuya noted amongst the two families was their children. In his family, the entire 11 children of the Togami household were essentially Social Darwinists who would go for every method to earn their parents trust and fortune. After going through all the tribulations and hardships of the family, seeing both the families' own children going well together without the entire competition mindset (and actually gaining bonds towards each other) is a breath of fresh air for him.
    • For those wondering what is happening behind the scenes with Yeon-kyo and her husband, its a rather long story. Despite being married with him for a long time, the couple's toleration to each other is a rather all time low. In fact, he basically treat's her as a Trophy Wife and not an actual love interest, so much that is has slowly broken her many times. This feeling is something both Trip and Grace has unfortunately felt after their marriage, so much that hearing Yeon-kyo's experiences with him has left both slowly reconsidering their marriage facade and at the same time, trying to remedy the situation with her.
    • The tales of the rich Parks was not received well by two known rich figures: Jay Gatsby and Charles Kane, who saw the Parks to be a true testament to the perils of being very rich. Gatsby in particular feels extreme disappointment with Dong-ik's disdain towards anyone, especially the poor while Kane's response to this is with contempt due to how unstructured the family is despite all the wealth they have, a case that Kane had suffered and died of as a result.
      • Another took notice of the Parks and noted them as a harsh lesson of being rich, that being Perrine Clostermann. Considering that she had to sacrifice all her riches, including her life for the sake of hometown, seeing a family even with such envious riches yet still broken towards each other disheartens her and is rather glad that she sacrificed all the riches she ever had.
  • The families also has a spot on the House of Philosophy, under Optimism & Pessimism.

  • His mother dying shortly after giving birth to him, Oliver Twist went through a series of misfortune and mistreatment whilst living in a workhouse, working to have at least three gruel a day. This culminated in a series of bullies insulting Oliver's deceased mother in front of him and a fight, after which Oliver escaped the workhouse and encountered Jack Dawkins, "The Artful Dodger", whom tricked Oliver into being serviced under the criminal Fagin. Oliver would later persist and eventually lead a successful life, although many of his friends and close associates would die, in addition to Oliver still having a series of unresolved issues.
  • The Pantheon was a rather memorable experience for Oliver. He was overwhelmingly surprised and was eager to see this new world in which he had ascended into. Of course, he would temper his curiosity and try to see if there was someone helpful he could find, considering the amount of misfortune he had to go through.
  • Much of the Pantheon expressed their sympathies for what Oliver had to go through, especially with the workhouse, Jack, Fagin and Bill Sikes. They've decided to grant Oliver access to much of the House of Food to remedy the the struggle Oliver went through to earn himself three pots of gruel. Oliver is happy, though he feels as if the Pantheon is being too flattering on him.
  • An orphan himself, Oliver soon met the Orphan Quintet, who have their fair share of troubles and struggles during their orphaning years. Oliver was really pleased to see individuals who have been through a similar predicament and is more than willing to help them out. The company of Pollyanna Whittier especially helped in getting Oliver to act more optimistic and happy about himself and towards others.
    • He also found company under other orphans like Tetsuya Tsurugi and the Baudelaire Orphans for obvious reasons. Because of the type of friends he has now made, Oliver finds himself frequently visiting the House of Family whenever he needs company and support. On a similar, note, he has gained assistance from Madeline and Annie regarding how to fend for himself and cherishing his closest memories.
    • Charlie Bucket immediately struck a friendship with Oliver the moment the latter ascended. The two had a lot to relate to, with neither of them having proper housing to accommodate them and with food being a major part in their tales. While the two of them managed to find themselves in a more manageable situation regarding profit, Charlie seems guilty in that he has something Oliver doesn't. He tries his best to cheer up Oliver, even taking him to the Chocolate Factory at times.
  • Kazuma Kiryu has expressed sympathy for what Oliver had to go through, and offered him a place to take comfort in. He's allowed Oliver to visit his orphanage at any given time, and would try to appoint meetings with other orphans as well to give Oliver company. Oliver also befriended Jean Valjean, seeing as both went through similar hardships. Jean is also willing to aid and support Oliver should the latter desire. That, and the two of them also had their stories published in Film and Stage Musicals.
  • Bruce Wayne took notice of Oliver's past and hardships, immediately sympathizing with Oliver. He decided to invest a good deal of his profit on providing resources and support for him, and Bruce himself gets to meet Oliver once in a while, talking to him and giving him advice and therapy to help him out. There's rumors of Bruce wanting to appoint Oliver as an additional Robin, which he's made no comment of as of yet. Peter Pan also took notice, often getting Tinkerbell to blanket Oliver with pixie-dust to give him a fun time. As a result, Oliver became fast friends with Peter, often spending time flaying around the Pantheon, though Pan knows that Oliver would grow out of it.
  • The Straw Hat Pirates have decided to allow Oliver to have fun with them as many times as he would like to provide him with joy. Luffy, being incredibly passionate about friendships and realizing the struggle he had to go through to eat, is very close to Oliver, even allowing him to have his food, which was surprising given Luffy's approach to eating. On a similar note, Link, himself having learned to make food will often give his servings to Oliver. Oliver is content with how much support he is getting in the Pantheon since, though he would also like to see if he can earn them himself.
  • As someone who had his experiences with abusive figures, Oliver hates Heihachi and Ozai for their horrible treatment towards their children, in addition to the latter not having any guilt in him whatsoever. The two remind him all too well about Bill Sikes and his treatment towards Nancy. Similarly, he avoids the 456 Ambassador and Basco ta Jolokia as much as he could, considering the two of them specifically target children for their own malicious means.
  • Oliver once heard of an incident where Stewie Griffin imagined himself as Oliver. After learning that Stewie would oppress himself against the workhouse and force his superior into a dance, Oliver chuckled upon hearing it. That said while he does like how Stewie would assert his defense, Oliver is not fond of his bratty, smug demeanor. Stewie himself doesn't seem to mind Oliver's presence in the Pantheon either. While he is a jerk, Stewie knows what Oliver went through, so he has made an exception on going after him.
  • While he would escape poverty and find financial stability after being adopted by his maternal aunt, Oliver has not fully recovered from his tribulations, especially considering he's been struggling for the entirety of his childhood. The deaths of Nancy and Dick still etches clear in his mind, although happy, Oliver knows he will never forget about his experiences. For now, he is finding new company as a means for therapy and a sign of moving on.
